Forum: classic_tv Subject: Anyone know the exact air dates of the following?

I'm currently working on a very special blog post and need the air dates of many TV episodes as part of my research. Of course, if somebody at those TV archives were nice enough to upload them, it would probably be easier (if it included a comment like "Larry Lumbubble and Steve Brianson will be appearing in the Miracle Pictures production of 'Nara and Shika' opening in theatres in three weeks", we could find out the date of broadcast easily, for example...just an example. Those two people are fake. Miracle Pictures is a joke from an old cartoon. Nara and Shika are both words from a language I don't speak), but that would be too nice to happen, wouldn't it? Knowing our luck we'll never see them. Any help with the air dates will result in me saying "thank you".

Thank you very much! Thank you! THANKS! (I didn't think "Opera Cameos" was airing at that point...was it a local series at the time? The rest seem correct though)

THANK YOU!!

Maybe a review on the "La Traviata" episode in Billboard Magazine (Mar. 3, 1951,page 6) will answer some of your questions. I try and post a link and hope it comes out alright.

Interesting...I presume to the episode I saw listed was a different one from a differnt date and that the show switched station/network during 1953, as Paley Center for Media listed the network as "DuMont", while WPIX was an Independent station at the time...and the chances of the local version ever being kinescoped are slim. I do wonder, if the DuMont version was as bad as the WPIX version.

I didn't even know there was a WPIX version!

( probably should have included more info in the original post....sorry)
